For more users on the machine perhaps we should write a new message on
the different mailing lists
that it now starts. The last message from us was at the beginning of april.
I can post to the german OSM list and can contact some people directly
which are geo interested. Some of them have a already a toolserver account.
Perhaps somebody else can post to the english list.
On jira is no OSM-Toolserver account request pending ,. That's the
start point, than I can support the admins to decide about such a request.
Also if we have no database-server in the moment it could be only good
for the setup of cassini if we know what people wants to do.
Yeah it'll have to be advertised, but it's not very useful now for the
general tool user. We do have a mapnik database though but that only
goes so far.
I'm just hoping to get more people who are interested in the rendering
stack now, and hopefully a lot of different people later once the main
DB is up.
